Henrician and Elizabethan

People see my sewing and get scared of me.  I don't get it... any quilter would be happy to explain to any costumer that it's perfectly reasonable to cut up a perfectly good length of ribbon into one inch strips, zigzag them side by side, put trim in the groove, and then weave them into a latticework.
